Re as I have changed jobs!

I work with in research support for a UK Higher Ed library, specialising in / & /

My particular interests are in systems, technologies & metadata, I work with Eprints, Symplectic Elements & Datacite.

I'm keen to develop more knowledge around open research cultures & practices, pre-registration & alternative publishing models.

Amongst other things, I got a better understanding from thhis post of how MetaDoor is intended to work.

The Uni of Leeds library had a conference for the first time today and my goodness it was a fantastically inspiring and enjoyable day. I'm only on my second week in post but the level of expertise & professionalism is something else.

Some period tracking apps will share your data. Stay safe, use one from @fdroidorg without Internet permission.

Possible options are:
drip (safest!)
Periodical
log28

All of these apps don't ask for internet permission and thus can't share your data. Drip goes the extra mile and explicitly opts out of Android's backup framework so your data won't be backed up on Google servers.

Please boost for those who need it!

I am hoping to network and connect with other professional and amateur digitization and archivist technicians, to aid in a project, and to basically have an avenue or group to discuss related topics!

If you are a #digitization tech or #archivist , know someone in those fields interested in networking or chatting about their work, or are a self-proclaimed #datahoarder or amateur with experience, please feel free to reach out here on Mastodon , or by email: contact [at] nabein {dot} me

There is this conference "Semantic Web in Libraries"(SWIB) which I am involved in organizing. Each year, there's a great bunch of people meeting.

You have something interesting to share about #LinkedData in libraries or related institutions? Or have some ideas on how libraries could contribute more to the growth and maintenance of the Fediverse?

Please consider a submission (which is only an abstract). The deadline has just been extended to 11 July 2022: swib.org/swib22/

Really wish Epubs were the favored format for scholarly papers and books over PDFs

Can anyone recommend a good app/browser add-on? The volume of reading I need to do for work has increased significantly. My comprehension & retention is much improved with listening & reading together. Thanks in advance! :boost_requested:

Are you itching to share your research with an interdisciplinary crew of lovely & attentive folks?

Well submit an abstract to now! We're accepting abstracts until July 1st (which is fast approaching!).

This is interesting:

Preprint citations twice as likely in Methods sections of papers fediscience.org/@OpenScienceFe

I think that being cited in Methods sections means often that stuff is actually reproducible. While in Intro/discussion too often high-impact journal papers are cited - that often enough to critisise end up being not reproducible. But keep being cited, because so many others cited.

An argument pro preprint!

"I heard you got funding for a ML text generator?"

"Yeah. The grant application practically wrote itself."

@helenlblomfield I've always thought that mirroring to two repositories simultaneously should be sufficient. ❤️💔

Figshare + Zenodo maybe? It's a lot of work of course. Ideally there would be that helps facilitate archival so less work for each new org that does this.

Following up on my post about after chatting here & to colleagues. Records published with Creative Commons licenses can't have them revoked, but challenges in migrating data out of a system if the terms or principles of the provider become unacceptable (or bought out) is seen as the greater threat.

2 Questions for my resource description frens:

1) is the RDA toolkit really behind a paywall?
And if so

2) why is it? isn’t that gatekeeping people from being able to “do RDA”?

Yeah! 🙃

Q: How familiar are you with the FAIR data principles in relation to open data?

Which is to say, I'm hoping to learn and if anyone reads this and has thoughts to share I'd be grateful to hear them!

I've now started in a role working more directly with research data. The repository in place is old, imperfect and ingest has been called 'clunky'. In many ways I can see Figshare as a fitting solution but manager is uncomfortable using a system owned by a publisher. I can see it both ways & want to better understand the reality of the risks & benefits here.
